, that approval may go down due to the sinking economy. there is no question americans like barack obama they are cutting him a tremendous amount of slack. could be style over substance because the president's achievements have been few. obama care is the law. we all know that. but corporations like boston scientific are laying off some workers. largely because of the cost they will incur for obama care health insurance. if that trend takes hold, we're all in big trouble. so we are living in a very interesting time. we have a popular president, a bad economy, and everybody paying more in taxes. simply doesn't add up. pardon the pun. and that's the memo. now for the top story tonight, an opposing point of view. with us one of the 8 a co-hosts of the five broadcast bob beckel. you know, there are so many guys. i don't know -- do you know what i mean? >> it's not that many. it's five. that's not the point. where did you get that $5 trillion from? this is the no spin zone. that's a spin. he didn't spend $5 trillion. >> bill: yeah according to the congressional budget office he did. >> that i

"60 minutes" had that footage and they did not air it at the time. they did not air it when the debate broke out when the president this a terror attack

conduct. the obama administration, like the bush administration, stomped down these lawsuits and day won. they got most of these lawsuits dismissed. it was a massacre. some of these losses were getting to a point where we could have had a fantastic ruling. the courts would finally acknowledge standing and say you cannot violate the privacy of citizens and president obama and his administration blocked it. we have seen that throughout the four years of the obama administration. there's a disconnect between what obama says publicly and what he actually does in court. gay-rights is a good example. at thesident's inauguration is not the present we see in court. for the early part of his term, he was in court fighting to protect oma and don't ask, don't tell, . he still has not been willing to support that view so there is a disconnect. public-interest litigator is like myself, this is an extremely hostile administration. there is no change between this administration and bush. this administration has been more successful in that sense. host: let's go to louisville, kentucky, independent line

? well, all of america now knows it was an empty promise, just like when president obama promised health insurance premiums would go down. over and over again the president said that his law would lower premiums by $2,500 a family by the end of his first term in office. the president hasn't talked much about that hately. didn't hear anything about it in the inaugural address and i don't expect to hear very much about it in the state of the union. that's because average premiums across the country for families haven't gone down, not by the $2,500 that the president promised, not by even $1,000, not even by a cent. instead, average family premiums have actually gone up by more than $3,000 during the president's first term. that's pretty big math there on the part of president obama and the american people unfortunately are the ones who have to pay for his mistake. because of his policies, health insurance is a lot less affordable for a lot of people and for a the although of small businesses. -- and for a lot of small businesses. many small businesses are facing what is turning out to be a

of president obama's gun package, but you say it all comes down to people's behavior. what do you mean? >> effective gun control has many facets to it. assault weapons ban is an element, significant symbolism. but the reality is you want to control behavior. the behavior of people. and that's what we did in the '90s here in new york. that's what i did in los angeles for seven years. crime is caused by people. you focus on their behavior and one of the behavioral changes is insuring that everybody that wants to buy a firearm has to basically submit to an i.d. check. that's form of behavior control. a lot of laws, a lot of tools are necessary, but effectively what you're doing is trying to control behavior. >> gretchen: you say that supersedes legislation. i just want to show some crime stats from new york when you were in charge here in the '90s. so murders fell 70%, car theft down 61. robbery down 55%. burglary down 53%. what did you do significantly about behavior? >> we had a very assertive police force, a very large police force. did the same thing in los angeles with a small police
